The River Heights Pavilion is situated on the outskirts of Taiyuan along the edge of its famous Fen River. As the capital of Shanxi province, Taiyuan is an example of a second tier Chinese city developing at break neck speed. The River Heights Pavilion is built on a typical blank slate site, yet counters the trend of low density housing developments. It is an urban project located in the middle of suburbia.

Gaurav Gupta Couture

Saturday, August 3rd, 2013

Article source: Gaurav Gupta

The concept of the store is born out of the duality of Gaurav’s collections for his Pret and Couture lines.

This 1200 sq ft space is conceived as an immersive environment sculpted in monochrome. Sinuously wrapping cast concrete walls seem to surreally float within the relatively tight volume, and slice the space into two zones without dividing it balancing a constant sense of reveal and discovery.

Built in Tijuana, we have taken advantage of the increidible construction craft that is available, in which construction workers have worked in both the USA and Mexico, so they can perfectly execute construction techniques used in both countries.

NYC Tower Proposal in South Street Seaport, New York by MA2

Saturday, August 3rd, 2013

Article source: MA2

The concept proposal is located in Manhattan’s South Street Seaport as an office tower with an adjacent parking structure. In its inception the tower is a product of preserving angles within a complex plane grid, which has been interfered by a Mobius geometric transformation. By manipulating a two-dimensional grid using asymptotic developments, it generates a series of automorphing patterns and higher dimensional structures.

San Giacomo Church in Ferrara, Italy by Miralles Tagliabue EMBT

Saturday, August 3rd, 2013

Article source: Miralles Tagliabue EMBT

The Parish complex of San Giacomo is proposed as a catalyst for the area in which it is introduced, creating a new fulcrum that is capable of creating identity within the local community by promo-ting socialization, education and interaction. The building is de­signed to have a welcoming presence that is open to the people, doing so through the use of lightweight organic architecture that contrasts with the robust and compact materiality of the histori­cally important preexisting Ferrara.
